I like this poster (Alain de Loin) Nov 23, 2020

I have the charming Alan Delon looking at me every morning with this wild look:

Whatever you do, right or wrong, he'll just look the other way.

"Looking at me" is a bit of a stretch...

He seems rather, remote... inaccessible.

Perhaps with a little bit enlargement (of the imagination)...

... and the human body don't mix. Seriously. I remember a friend of mine (and it was a friend of mine, not me) suffered the effects of strawberry yoghurt for weeks, the flavour his girlfriend liked best as a fun topping.

Please tell your Ang that this Ang thinks the banter on this thread should save all of you from elimination this week at least!

About time! Nov 23, 2020

Which male contributor has to leave this thread, to enlarge the proportion of women posters?


Yes, it's high time that we girls took the power! I can't decide, though. I judge men only by their appearance but it might be a bit inappropriate to ask a male colleague for his nude pic. It's better that everyone stay.

However, if you really want to bring some diversity here why stop at just two genders? We are dealing with a rather broad spectrum nowadays. Speaking of which, Chris, do you still practise cross-dressing?

We have a vote! Nov 23, 2020

That´s why I have to implement a quick poll here. Merkel´s figures were quite frankly and pointed on the fact, that the proportion of male contributors is much too high in this thread Tom started. Therefore we have to react and have to get rid of some of the most prominent male contributors (you know, like in the "People without Space" concept). I will propose some of them with a tick box. Ladies, it´s up to you and please take your choice very carefully:

Which male contributor has to leave this thread, to enlarge the proportion of women posters?

❑ Me (see picture above)
❑ Mervyn
❑ Chris S
❑ T.i.L.
❑ The_guy_with_the_sunglasses
❑ Thomas T. Frost



My phone just rang with Ursula von der Leyen on the line (The President of the European Commission), telling me that she has spoken to Angela (Merkel) and all above candidates have to leave the thread, except ... Alain Delon!
Before she put down the phone, she asked me whether I knew the phone number of the (quote) "son of the desert" ...

Just work on posters enlargement, and the proportions will take care of themselves (especially if you tick "keep original ratio" or if it's square format)...


I’m happy not only to see you, but to see everyone here.
There’s no need to do that.
Also translators have already plenty of imagination, after all we are creative minds

Alan certainly looks as if he's been sleeping on a desktop. I assume he goes out during the day so that you can get on with some work.


Don’t say that, Mervyn. How can Alain have that look?
He doesn’t go out and especially today. I am translating a French document, and he can be of great help and a source of inspiration

Ooh là là Nov 23, 2020

Or Ooh Alain, rather. Don't get involved with these desktop dreamboats, Exy. It can only end in tears. He'll take your heart and play with it for a while and throw it away, and then rumple his hair for that carefully unkempt, dishevelled 'enfant terrible' look as he stares a tortured, mysterious, undefinable stare into the middle distance. Just like his dad did.

We need all the candidates here, please!
But you can leave Alain « de près ou de loin, c'est à dire de quelque manière que ce soit » (in any way whatsoever).
Try to give a call to Ursula, and tell her it is not a fair vote.

Angela Nov 23, 2020

You're dragging your feet a little, aren't you, Angela? I remember requesting a secret Spanish snack-scoffer update of behalf of the others some time ago. A request turning foostier by the minute, too ...

But Ursula only has jurisdiction over the EU, Matthias, so she can’t get rid of me and Tom. We’ve taken our country back, you know.

Sadly Tom is not currently joining us in the playpen (perhaps he’s putting all that huffing and puffing to good use by trying that trick where you put a London over your head and blow it up like a balloon?).

Which just leaves me and Alain. Poor guy probably isn’t used to being outshone.

Zibow, I’ll send you your photo later. And no, I’m not still practising cross-dressing; I have totally mastered the art. 👠👠

... Chris is right and Ursula is on her way to the airport to get the last flight to Cairo, therefore I cannot reach her anymore.

Christine? Do you mean Christine Lagarde, perhaps, ex IMF (International Monetary Funspoiler) and now ECB (European Central Babe)? But lots of hot air in either case.
